    Okay so i bought my 90 mustang 4 years ago it is a automatic :( a week after i bought it the tranny took a poo on me lost reverse so i had it rebuilt fast forward to present and now when i drive in o/d after it shifts through first second and third gets to where it should shift in to o/d at about 2500 - 2000 rpm it wont shift but it wont accelerate it will just rev like its in neutral but once it drops back down to below the shift point i have power again so i dont know if its an electrical or mechanical issue any help is appreciated

    Its a aod unless someone changed to aode. Do you do the 1,2,1 shifting in it? I read that will blow out your overdrive

    AOD uses throttle pressure and a govenor to dictate shift points and line pressure so if you have an AOD and have issues it's purely mechanical. Sounds to me like you have an issue with either the overdrive band or the servo for the overdrive band.

    Sounds like someone did to many 121 shuffles. It puts excessive pressure on the OD band and that is a symptom. Take it to a trans shop, have them put a pressure gauge on it . You may want to drop the pan and look for excessive material.

    C4 you will lose the O/D. I would recommend you head over to http://www.clickclickracing.com/forums/forum.php It is a great site for AOD discussion and tech.

    Unless there is some reason you can't have a manual trans, convert it to a 5 speed if it's shot this time.
    3 grand on a stock aod is insanity.

    3k????

    I can get a rebuilt AOD with a shift kit for $750! they are full of crap for 3k. 3k would get you a monster transmission.

    3k for an AOD rebuild is outrageous.
